AIS Receiver and DSC in One Marine Handheld

AIS receiver and DSC function add further assurance to your safety at sea. The integrated AIS receiver displays vessel traffic information on the screen. The AIS target call function allows you to easily set up a DSC individual call. Distress calls can be made with the rear panel Distress button.

6 W RF Output Power and 10 Hours of Operating Time

The IC-M94DE’s 6 watts*1 of transmit power provides extended communication range for the user. The supplied BP-306 high capacity 2400 mAh (typical) Li-ion battery, provides 10 hours of operating time, under normal conditions*2.

*1 5 W for AUS version
*2 Approximate, typical operation with TX: RX: Standby= 5: 5: 90 duty ratio when the Power save function is ON.

Class-Leading 1500 mW Audio Output

Icom’s custom high-power capacity speaker delivers a loud 1500 mW (typical) audio output with improved acoustic sound clarity for noisy maritime environments.

Simplified Navigation Function

Navigation screen

The Navigation function guides you to a specified waypoint. You can assign up to 50 favourite fishing spots or destinations as waypoints.

Float’n Flash and MOB Auto Set Functions

If the IC-M94DE falls into the water, it will float and the LCD screen, keys and rear panel Distress button will flash helping you to retrieve it. Pressing the distress button while the Float’n Flash is working will transmit the MOB distress signal.
